I've been opening the same pool for 16 years here in NJ and this has been by far the worst ever. The water has been so difficult to get clear this season. After many many cleaning, shocking and testing testing testing its finally starting to look clear. My guess is the near 100 degree weather we had and my busy schedule resulting in a lack of attention on my part.
This is my first post but thanks for all the interesting topics that have helped me along. After 16 years I considered myself an expert but I've been humbled this year.
